Which One Classic Car Event Would You Attend?

Over the weekend, “car week” began on the Monterey Peninsula, which will play host to the Pebble Beach Concours, the Quail, a Motorsport Gathering, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (aka the Laguna Seca Historics), the Concorso Italiano, countless auctions, and a handful of impromptu shows around the area. Simply put, this is the premier American classic car event of the year. But with so much going on simultaneously, which event should you attend. And this is just one week out of the year and in Monterey, with so many other wonderful vintage automotive events around the globe and calendar, how do you choose?
Granted that geographic proximity plays a large role, but cost and distance no object, would you choose the Goodwood Revival? Or the Concourso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este? Or perhaps Amelia Island (which effectively kicks off the show schedule in March)? With all of the buzz surrounding each of these events it’s tough to pick just one, but that’s what we’re asking you today. Which specific event would you attend (mind you, not a week or group of events)?
